How can you make realistic short(shaved) hair in Unreal Engine?

I am trying to render a character in Unreal and she has short/shaved hair on the side.The hair shader from the Example content works great on the cards but I couldn’t get the desired effect on a “cap” mesh nor with hair cards (hair cards were expensive in the polycount of the model also)

also the concept of the character is made by Mitch Mohrhauser
(thought i should mention it since its not mine)
